Congratulations Patricia Caspers

in the belly of the albatrossPatricia Caspers has released her first full-length poetry collection, “In the Belly of the Albatross,” available from Glass Lyre Press. Patricia is the winner of the Nimrod /Hardman Pablo Neruda Prize for Poetry, the Mary Merritt Henry Prize for Poetry, and the Marion Hood Boess Haworth Prize for Poetry. She also has poetry and essays published widely in publications such as Anderbo, Ploughshares, PANK, Quiddity, Valparaiso, Generations, Dirtcakes, Cortland Review, r.k.v.r.y, and the Superstition Review.

“In these moving poems, many of them dramatic monologues spoken by women, Patricia Caspers conjures up the lives of historical individuals — a black slave midwife who [gives] ‘Justice her dowry,’ Amelia Earhart’s mother, waiting hopefully for her daughter’s return. And she reimagines the figures of Greek and Hebrew legend– the Gorgon who begs for ‘the gift of monstrosity’ the biblical Ruth, revealing a sensuality the Bible does not allow her … Caspers’ poems flourish and grow by turning themselves undaunted to the light.” — Chana Bloch
